El objetivo de este trabajo es construir un indicador de pobreza multidimensional que permita detectar los principales focos de riesgo de pobreza en España. El indicador, que ha sido elaborado mediante un análisis factorial de segundo orden, se compone de una parte objetiva y otra subjetiva, que incorpora diferentes dimensiones, tales como la satisfacción ante la renta, el trabajo, el ocio y la vivienda. Los resultados alcanzados se presentan de forma detallada para la muestra ampliada del PHOGUE del año 2000 y, de forma comparativa, entre 1994 y 2001.
